Bone & soft tissue pathology

Expertise to guide you

The differential diagnosis of challenging soft tissue and bone tumors frequently includes both mesenchymal and non-mesenchymal neoplasms, as well as non-neoplastic entities, necessitating case sharing with expert pathologists in many of our other pathology subspecialties. Additionally, at Mayo Clinic we are able to call on the expertise of our colleagues in Radiology, Surgery, Oncology, and other clinical disciplines to ensure the highest quality of patient care.
